Xavier Farmer Arrested with Loaded Gun, Drugs, and $80 in cash
BALTIMORE, MD. — Make a bet on how fast a lunatic District Court Commissioner lets this bozo loose on bail.
Baltimore City Police report that on October 29, 2017, Northwest District Action Team officers received information from a credible source that a male named Xavier Farmer was illegally armed in the 4800 of Cordelia Avenue.
With that information, the officers responded to that area and located Farmer. When Farmer noticed the police, he attempted to run and was quickly apprehended.
Officers seized from Farmer a loaded semi-automatic handgun, suspected marijuana, $80.00 and a cell phone. All seized property was submitted as evidence.
19-year-old Xavier farmer of 4808 Cordelia Avenue was arrested and transported to Central Booking. He has been charged with handgun and narcotics violations, specifically, possession of a gun by a convicted felon, which says a lot about his criminal career and the incompetence of the Maryland Judicial system where a convicted criminal is loose on the streets at the age of only 19.
Farmer, who had an open warrant for failing to appear for a previous trial, is currently waiting to see a court commissioner. As of Oct. 30, 2017, he was still behind bars. The only other criminal charge as an adult was a warrant issued for his arrest for second-degree assault. The charge was dropped by Baltimore City States Attorney Marilyn Mosby on May 6, 2016. Farmer may have sowed the fields of crime in Baltimore as a juvenile and gained a felony conviction in the process but such juvenile records are locked up away from the public.
